The Bishop’s Social Justice Commission wishes to draw the attention of parishes and schools that there is two foci during the month of October – Anti Poverty Week and Catholic Mission month. This is a time when through Catholic Mission resources global poverty is emphasised. It is also a time during Anti-Poverty Week (Sunday, October 15 – Saturday, October 21) that awareness can be raised in communities of the poverty experienced in Australia, including your own local district. Resources can be found here.
